Re: Drug abuse in thailand (Arrests/News)

“Thailand is ranked 6th in the world when it comes to the number of inmates,” That's because other countries don't fill their jails with drug abusers. I agree there are a lot of arrests but the drugs recovered are a drop in the ocean. Did anyone notice in that vid that at one point the keystone cop...

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

My folks were always there for me if needed even though miles (sometimes thousands) apart. Okay, the other way round is really no different. It doesn't matter where in the world you are and how far your family is spread, you can still be there for each other. My daughter in the UK left for college w...

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I was 16 when I joined the RN. By the time I was 19, I'd been around the world and was involved in the Indonesian-Malay confrontation. Based in Singapore, President Sukarno surrendered after he learned that I was involved in the fight.... lol. Saw a couple of mates killed. Got a medal. Grew up! Some...

Re: Hua Hin Restaurant News

Thanks for that. Some great pics.
I did notice from a pic of their 'board menu' that prices have actually come down in some cases.

I live on 112 so it's quite a trek but well worth it.

Re: Hua Hin Restaurant News

I found a restaurant by accident in Soi 6. Only because I was looking for somewhere to eat when visiting the little 'un in hospital. Called 'Moms' the food is excellent and it would be difficult to beat their prices. Wide range from pizza and other farang food to Thai food. 59 baht for 'burger and f...

Re: Thai Fresh Eggs

Spot on Takiap in that the older the egg, the easier it is to peel. Putting them in cold water for a while serves two purposes. As well as being supposedly easier to peel, it prevents the yolk the blue/green tinge around the yolk, although it's quite harmless.

Re: Car body repair shop in Hua Hin

Always had first class. My wife drives the older one which I bought from new and as Nereus says, can no longer get 1st class on that because it's old.
My car at the moment is just 4 years old and never a mention of any discount. Only ever called them out once for a flat battery to get me started!

Re: GBP vs THB

The pound is sinking fast. Interbank rate 42.75, lowest for 10 years or more.
Fortunately, because I keep my eye on it, I transferred a big lump just over a week ago and it arrived at 43.6 net. That's probably under 42 at the bank now.

Re: Car body repair shop in Hua Hin

Really! All the years here and I have asked the question with each company I've used and the answer's always been the same. No limit on claims and your premium doesn't alter. I can count the claims over the years on one hand. I've obviously lost out somewhere.

Re: Car body repair shop in Hua Hin

I had to get a nasty scratch done on my car after somebody decided they could squeeze their motorbike between my car and a wall. I went to Ford, and told them I'd pay rather than insurance. They directed me to a place about 50 yards before the entrance to Makro. It is set back from the road a bit w...

Re: Thai Fresh Eggs

After several disasters, I've found peeling a hard boiled egg in a bowl of water (peel the egg underwater), it's worked every time.

Re: Thai Fresh Eggs

Eggs are embryos, after being refrigerated they are dead so need to stay refrigerated. Contradicted below but not because the embryo is dead: No, after eggs are refrigerated, it is important they stay that way. Maintaining a consistent, cool temperature is critical to safety. A cold egg left out at...
